Description

I finally finished it! That was pretty fun, but it took me forever to finally get it done. Now I just want to sew simple sundresses for a while. If you’re interested in more construction details I’ve written a post about it here

Thanks for looking!

      Thanks :) I agree about the tiny cups, I actually extended the height of the top cup piece but still made sure it matched up with the front bodice piece at the centre. Not sure I explained that clearly enough! Hope you work out a method that works for you!

      thanks for the info, i found a pattern in my stash with a similiar bodice only larger lol. i’ll just merge the two and make another frankenstein dress, a little bit here and a little bit there lol x
